My favorite thing about GoT is the strong female characters that are not forced in/written to appease feminist political propaganda.

Lyanna Mormont is by far the most bad ass leader of the smaller houses.

Arya is now totally insane, but it all makes sense with where she has been and what she has gone through. Brilliant!

Well, at least they could have not included Euron's act in the 'scenes from last season' immediately before the opening..

Though I do get your gleeful anticipation. :)

So this is now a thing:

‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel from Jane Goldman & George R.R. Martin Gets HBO Pilot Order | Deadline

It is planned to focus on the Bran the Builder era:

Quote:
Created by Goldman & Martin and written by Goldman based on a story by her and Martin, the untitled project takes the prequel concept to a new level as it is set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones. The series is described as chronicling “the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

Goldman will serve as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Martin as well as fellow GOT co-executive producer Vince Gerardis and Damages and Bloodline co-creator/exec producer Daniel Zelman. As previously announced, GOT creators/exec producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have no involvement in the potential offshoots.

The Goldman/Martin project was one of five GOT prequels HBO had put in development, signing deals with five writers to join Martin in the development and writing of five spinoffs of the blockbuster fantasy series, which don’t feature GOT characters. The other four scribes are Max Borenstein, Brian Helgeland, Carly Wray and Bryan Cogman. I hear that another of the scripts could get a green light though there is no rush or pressure to do so.

Asked by Deadline in January how many GOT prequel series HBO may go with, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said, “anywhere from zero to five but probably more likely around one. I’m happy with what I’m seeing but don’t have a time table yet in terms of how we’re going to make decision,” he said.

It is emblematic that the first (and so far only) GOT prequel project to get a pilot order will be written and run by a woman, raising the possibility that it could have a female lead character, something that would distinguish it from GOT, which was focused on Jon Snow’s journey.

HBO had been looking to launch a GOT prequel series in 2020, putting distance between it and the 2019 finale of GOT.

“There is not going to be anything in any scenario where we have any sort of prequel air for at least a year after that,” Bloys told Deadline in January. “I want the final season of Game of Thrones to be the final season of Game of Thrones, I don’t want to use it to launch something else, I want it to stand as the finale of the greatest tv show of all time, I don’t want to do anything that infringes on that.”

Yeah, winter is coming. Thanks for the reminder. I prefer and enjoy winter rather than the summer. Summer means everywhere is hot which is really unbearable. But winter comes with the coolest day. LOL!
